Girl On Girl: Why Gay Marriage Matters To Me

I am currently seeing this really great girl. She’s smart, sweet and really fun to be around. We agree on a lot of things. We both hate the death penalty, love pizza and enjoy hanging out—sometimes illegally—on rooftops overlooking New York City. There is one thing, however, that we just can’t see eye-to-eye on. It’…

Girl On Girl: Lesbians Can Have Sex, Trust Me

I was recently in the car with a friend of mine, discussing my girlfriend and, I’ll admit, I was talking about my sex life. I don’t remember exactly what I said but I know it contained the phrase, “Then we had sex.” At this point my friend, a dude, took it upon himself to inform…

Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, Especially If You’re A Lesbian.

I am probably not alone in thinking that "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" is one of the suckiest pieces of legislation ever. The 1994 policy essentially says that peeps who are openly gay can't serve in the military. That said, if you're gay and don't mind keeping it a secret, then by all means serve…

The Secret Sex Lives Of Lesbians

I was watching an episode of "South Park" the other night. One of the characters, Mrs. Garrison, was fed up with men and decided to become a lesbian. At first, she had a hard time imagining what sex between two lesbians looked like. Other characters in the episode had a hard time imagining it, too.

Girl Talk: Dating As A Bisexual Woman

One of the first times I went on a date with a girl, she asked me, “Are you bi or gay?” “Well, I’m still figuring that out," I told her. Her response was: “I knew you were too good to be true.” I then fell all over myself in an effort to explain to her…

"I know, I know. It’s hard to hurt her, but I kind of feel she’s frequently hoisted on whatever she’s told to be. I still think she could have had the best relationship of her life with that roommate. That, by the way, is probably not the first time that happened to Joan. I realized…

Television Tries To Represent Gay And Lesbian Folks. But Usually Fails.

I gotta say, given that it's 2009 and all, I'm just not impressed with how gay and lesbian folks are portrayed on television. Sure, you might see gay couples on TV, particularly of the lesbian variety. But often, these portrayals smack of being publicity stunts. This week, the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against…

The University of Illinois College of Nursing just got $3 million from the federal government to set the record straight about gayelles and alcoholism. “Myths and stereotypes of lesbians as alcoholics and heavy drinkers are largely based on studies conducted in the 1970s that recruited most of their samples from gay bars," Prof. Tonda Hughe…

Gay Rodeo Clown

I knew that I was a lesbian very early on. As I reached my twenties, it was clear that I was a butch lesbian, with more “male” energy than “female.” But my long hair and curvy body was not supporting my self-image. That had to change. It’s not that I wanted to be a guy…
